Commercial Industrial


In 2013, Waste Management began the expansion of their transfer facility located on the corner of Commercial Row and Sutro Street, adjacent to the Truckee River in Reno. The development included parking lot improvements, modifications to the transaction and scale facilities, additional landscaping and the addition of new buildings for dispatch, training and administration. While Waste Management had been at this location for several decades, the site's zoning had changed over time and was no longer in conformance with the current zoning regulations, requiring specific improvements to the parking lot, landscaping, sidewalks and pedestrian amenities. CFA provided permitting assistance associated with the entitlements, including a variance and special use permit application, and building permit approvals. CFA worked with CH2M Hill to provide landscape architecture, land use planning and civil engineering services. The project was completed in 2016.
